|Momma Ruth and me at my brother's wedding in December - isn't she beautiful!!|
Also, I don’t know what makes it Swedish because it is more like a cross between a BBQ, Sweet and Sour and Asian. But don’t let that description scare you away. These are fantastic and will be a hit no matter when you serve them!
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Celery Salt
1 tsp Chili powder
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup Onion, finely diced
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup Vinegar
½ cup Catsup
½ cup Chili Sauce
Juice of 1 lemon
2 cups Water
Combine all the ingredients and allow it to simmer covered while you make the meatballs.
2 lbs. Ground Beef
½ tsp Black Pepper
2 tsp Salt
1 TBLS Prepared Mustard
½ cup Dry bread crumbs or oatmeal
2 – 4 TBLS Milk
Mix all the ingredients with only half of the milk. Mix ingredients thoroughly adding the remaining milk as needed. It should be moist but not runny.
Make 2” diameter balls. Place meatballs on a lightly oiled baking pan with sides (there will be some grease released).
Bake in pre-heated oven at 350°F for 20 minutes.
Remove and place in large pan or baking dish.
Add sauce and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes. Place into serving dish and serve.
The meatballs can be made ahead and frozen to save time. After browning them in the oven, drain and freeze.
